In a move that had been speculated for a couple of months now, the Denver Broncos have parted ways with veteran running back Willis McGahee who was coming back from a broken leg.
The Broncos drafted Montee Ball to be the future starting running back and must be comfortable enough with Knowshon Moreno as the backup. Moreno finally showed some life toward the end of 2012 after McGahee suffered his injury and Denver still has second-year back Ronnie Hillman to provide the change-of-pace role.

I’m sure this isn’t the end of the road for McGahee yet, but fo...
